Join the Fridge Door Gallery on Thursday March 22nd at 4PM in Arts W-215 for “Campus Creative: Locating Art in the University,” a discussion panel on the place of creativity and art-making at McGill. Without a Fine Arts department at the University, many students find themselves needing alternative outlets like student groups to make and display their art. The situation McGill finds itself in is not unique, but is still intriguing and leads to many questions.
Media@McGill and the AHCS Speaker Series have invited Anna Feigenbaum, Minute Works, and Gavin Grindon to give a talk, "Cruel Design / Disobedient Design – The Art and Politics of Designing for Social Justice."
Andrew W. Mellon Fellow
Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe, NM
Indigenous Agency and the Collecting of California Indian Baskets
This talk will examine the role museums have played in the representation of California Indian basketry. A case study of historical and contemporary baskets from coastal Southern California Indian communities will highlight the changes basket weaving has undergone as artists explore new approaches to asserting their Indigenous heritage.
MERCURY Course Evaluations will be available to students until April 16 for units following the condensed period (or until May 2 for units following the default period).
Dr. Casey Wood helped to build two of McGill's major library collections, the Osler and the Blacker Wood, among the finest collections of their kind in the world. Join scholars from McGill, UQAM and Queens to explore Wood's own important research in bird vision and ornithology, and his stunning legacy of rare books, Islamic manuscripts, materia medica of Sri Lanka, and original works of art by the greatest natural history artists, from Edward Lear and John Gould to Lady Elizabeth Gwillim.
